All the conceptual divisions invented by Gurus by their orthodox attitude. Where do all these concepts end? Why should confusion created and then explained away? Fortunate is the man who does not lose himself in the garbage of superstition and dogmas, but goes straight to the Source from which ‘I’ arises.
The ignorance is the cause of experiencing the duality (universe or waking) as a reality. Thus eradicating the ignorance is necessary. And this is possible only through Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atma Gnana. Thus, there is no other road to freedom other than Gnana. There is no other entrance other than except Gnana. The ignorance will vanish only when the nondual wisdom dawns. Detachment to attachment is impossible without the Advaitic wisdom. Only when one realizes the fact that, the Self is not the form but the Self is formless, timeless and spaceless existence then only it is possible to detach the ‘Self’ from the false attachment.
That is Sri Sankara, in Bhaja Govindam says: One without knowledge does not obtain liberation even in a hundred births, no matter which religious faith he follows.
The Advaita does belong to any religion. Advaita belongs to the whole humanity. The Advaitic wisdom is universal irrespective of any religion of faith one belongs. The religion is not the means to Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atma Gnana. Sage Sri, Sankara’s Advaita minus orthodoxy is true Advaita.
Sage Sri Sankara: ~ VC~"All this universe which through ignorance appears as of diverse forms, is nothing else but Brahman which is absolutely free from all the limitations of human thought
Sage Sri, Sankara: ~ VC Neither sacred baths nor any amount of charity nor even Hundreds of pranayamas* can give us the knowledge about our own Self. The firm experience of the nature of the Self is seen to proceed from inquiry along the lines of the salutary advice of the wise. (13)
The ‘Self’ is the formless, timeless and spaceless Soul, which is present in the form of the consciousness.The world in which we exist is created out of the formless, timeless and spaceless stuff. That stuff is the consciousness. When the world, in which you exist, is created out of the consciousness then everything is the Soul, which is present in the form of the consciousness. The Soul is hidden within the illusory form, time, and space, but it is without the form, time, and space. The Soul, which is present in the form of consciousness, is the ever formless, timeless and spaceless existence.
